After the incident involving Earl Bamber in #72 Porsche GT3 R 4.0 and Ro Charlz in #13 Lamborghini LP560-4 the safety car lead for 6 laps and the race was re-started on the 7th lap, lead by Marco Engel, followed closely by Alexandre Imperatori, Renger Van Der Zande, and Edoardo Mortara.

Dramatic Finale in the last 8 minutes. Lap by Lap Highlight:

Lap 9: Two laps after safety car, Marco Engel who was in the lead had to retire due to mechanic issue.

Lap 10: Edoardo Mortara made a risky yet superbly executed overtake on Renger Van Der Zande into the left hander at the top on the San Francisco Hill into P2.

Lap 11: With the back marker closing in at the Melco Hairpin, the chasing pack really closed to bumper to bumper as they enter Fishermans bend, Edoardo Mortara got the inside line from Alexander Imperatori, side by side into Fishermans bend giving him the lead, Danny Watts #23 in his Mclaren MP4-12C ran close to Edoardo follow-through getting him into P2, and Imperatori was demoted to P3.

Lap 12: On the last lap Van Der Zande tried a brave out brake move into Lisbao Bend on the outside of Imperatori , but entered too fast crashing into the barrier.

Edoardo Mortara makes his record 6th Win in this legendary street circuit at the 60th Diamond Jubilee Macau Grand Prix.
